With a big heart for empowering teen moms at Hope House, Kristina brings both personal passion and professional experience to the development team. In her free time, she enjoys taking care of her family, reading, traveling and art! In the summer, she spends her time camping and boating in the beautiful Colorado mountains with family and friends, and in the winter, at home next to the fireplace arguing with her husband and kids about which Netflix series to binge next!
